My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 633: A-Positive Orange

Pretty fruit Here's some good cold-weather food: beef & broccoli stir-fry and baked Japanese sweet potato. On the other side I have some tamarinds, almond cake, and a fruit salad made with persimmon,  kiwi, baby bananas, and blood orange.

Blood oranges, in case you don't know, are oranges that look normal on the outside - or may look like someone dropped them in some red dye - and when you peel them the segments are orange, red, purple, or all of the above, as is the case in the photo on the right. They taste slightly berrylike. As some of you may have guessed, I am fond of weird-colored food, so when I saw that Kroger had a sale on these I hustled on down to the store and grabbed a big sack of 'em.

Wanna talk about it?
